In honor of Jodi Benson’s birthday, please take a moment to absorb this beautifully candid video of her recording “Part of Your World.” What makes the video especially moving is the one-on-one coaching Howard Ashman, the song’s writer, provides to Ariel’s young voice actress throughout the recording process. Quality! Quality! QUA-LI-TY!
AAAAAAAAH!!! Jodi Benson and Howard Ashman together!!
Seriously, what would I give if I could be coached by the late great Howard Ashman?!? <3
